IUBMB Comments
The enzyme is specific for glucosamine and has only a minor activity with D-glucose. Two unrelated enzymes with this activity have been described. One type was studied in the bacterium Vibrio cholerae, where it participates in a chitin degradation pathway. The other type has been described from actinobacteria, where it is involved in the incorporation of environmental glucosamine into antibiotic biosynthesis pathways. cf. EC 2.7.1.147, ADP-specific glucose/glucosamine kinase.
